The Linyanti area in northern Botswana is made up of large private concessions including Linyanti, Selinda, and Kwando. The area is riddled with permanent channels, swamps, and rivers that make the area feel similar to the main Delta and result in excellent Big 5 game viewing without the crowds of Chobe. Because of a recent tectonic shift, the Selinda waterway that had been dry for over 20 years is now flowing year round, connecting the Linyanti to Selinda and creating new patterns of migration and wildlife behavior.

If you want the ultimate experience in this area then Zarafa is without a doubt the most luxurious option available. We have a particular soft spot for Selinda Explorers Camp which has an authentic and barefoot luxury feel and the emphasizes walking and canoeing. For a great experience at a slightly lower price point we really like Lagoon Camp and Linyanti Bush Camp and for those who love horseback riding we recommend Motswiri.

This area is best between June and September.
